    If you know anything about Pokemon games, then you should know that Red is the baddest mo fucka' around. So obviously, I'll go with Charmander.

    All three original starters are pretty damn iconic, I like em all. Bulbasaurs poison typing was amazingly helpful, especially in the actual original game when poison type was an actual threat and weakness... of course, half the plants dual typed poison, so it wasn't unique at all, but... I generally go with Charmander tho, just cause firetypes are rare and eventually the flying ability is useful for sheer utility. And of course I like the turtle, but other turtles have come along since.

    Gen 2 is Cyndaquil, no question, his entire evolution line looks badass.

    Gen 3 I really dig Treeko and his second form... the last not so much. But the show made him badass.

    Gen 4... I dunno. I'm kinda meh on all of them. I love the idea of Turtwig, since his ground typing is nice, but then he's competing against Sandslash, and well... my love of that useless critter overrides practicality nearly every time.

    Gen 5... Wotter is easily my favorite. ALl three forms.

    Generally though, I end up ditching the starter right around their final evolution. There's just usally something in-game with the same type that I like better for one reason or another. I dunnoif its over-exposure or the the though that everyone gets a starter so it snot unique to have one, or an unhealthy love of Bellsprout... I dunno.

    It'd be nice if they mixd the starters up next gen in some way though. And for Enel's sake, no more fire/fighting types. Yeesh.

    I just puzzled out Charizard's name like a week ago. I was was like OH SHIT IT'S LIZARD. I never really thought about it before, but where Charmander and Charmeleon immediately were obvious where they came up with the name, Charizard's for some reason wasn't obvious. Once I actually thought about it, well, yeah I felt silly.

    What are your guys' favorite pokemon in general?

    I'd have to say my top 3 are Ferrothorn, Camerupt, and Weezing. And then not far behind: Dragonite, Dusknoir, Gliscor, Flygon and Swampert, in no particular order.

    I always end up hating my starter, because I don't want it in my team anymore, but I've put so much time into it that I can't stand to abandon it.

    I'd love to see different types for the starters. Maybe Fighting, Dark, Psychic.

    As far as overall favorites go, I can't help but go back to Umbreon, Gengar, and Scizor all the time. Love those guys. Probably no coincidence that they were all available in Silver, my first Pokemon game.

    Charmander. It evolves into a dragon. A dragon that spits out fire. It also flies.

    Chikorita is the worst starter of all time. I think we can all agree on this.

    Went with Mudkip, but Charmander is good too. I also like Totodile.

    I always choose the water pokemon. My favorite among them is Squirtle, I like them all though. So think I'll just vote for all the water ones.

    I was the same way with Hitmonlee and Hitmonchan, Bruce Lee and Jackie Chan hadn't even crossed my mind. Completely floored, but then i wanted to rename Hitmontops as Hitmonnorris.

    Well in my personal experience, no one round my parts of the world has any idea what i'm talking about when I say capoeira. Including spellcheck it would seem.

    Honestly, they actually do come up with some pretty clever ones. I picture like, a bunch of dudes playing pool on one of the highest floors of some skyscraper owned by nintendo, playing pool and downing beers, tossing around word combinations for pokemon names when a new generation is about to come from japan to be translated.

    charmander and totodile... starters and their evolutionary lines gen 4 and 5 (and the rest of the pokemon for the later generations) all look really ridiculous...

    in pokemon red, why couldn't charizard, a dragon with wings fly?

    If Chikorita was in another region, maybe things would have worked out... But yeah it is pretty bad.
